The Bengals beat the Chiefs in Week 17 and the 49ers beat the Rams in Week 18, but the Bengals and 49ers will be underdogs for the upcoming conference championship rematches.

The Chiefs are favored by seven points over the Bengals in the AFC Championship Game, and the Rams are favored by three points over the 49ers in the NFC Championship Game.

The higher-seeded team has been favored in all 12 playoff games this year, so it’s no surprise that the 2-seed Chiefs are favored over the 4-seed Bengals, and that the 4-seed Rams are favored over the 6-seed 49ers.

So far in the 2022 NFL postseason the favored and higher-seeded teams are 6-4 straight up and 6-4 against the spread.

  1. I thought about watching those games, but I was just told I have an unsatisfying feeling from the last one.

  2. The 49ers have been kicking a++ and taking names on the road the past 3 weeks, including week 18 against the Rams at SoFi. Let’s see if Stafford and the boys can put an end to their improbable but impressive run…

  3. Bet early, cause those numbers are going to drop.
    This past weekend has shown home field means nothing, and considering the Bengals beat the Chiefs earlier in the year and the Rams have lost six straight to the 49ers, the justification for picking the underdogs has never been stronger.

  4. Still doubting the 49ers?
    Lil bit. The didn’t score a touchdown this weekend and if they hadn’t been playing the worst special teams unit ever seen in football they would have lost. So yeah, not sold yet, but I am rooting for them. Wouldn’t mind seeing a classic rematch of Cincy vs SF

  5. It’s going to be weird if the Bengals play the 49rs again!
    But I feel okay as long as Joe Montana isn’t pulled out of retirement!

  6. So the Bengals beat the Chiefs once already this season but get picked to lose by 7?
    The Bengals were able to pretty much shut down the Chiefs’ biggest weapons after the first half.
